Banana Coconut Crumble Cake

Banana, Coconut Crumble Cake


For the crumble

2 heaped tbsps self raising flour
2  tbsps golden caster sugar
2 tbsps desicated coconut
2 oz butter

rub all the ingredients together until breadcrumb like and set aside

For the Cake

3 medium over-ripe bananas mashed
190gms Self Raising flour
150 gms golden caster sugar
125 gms butter
2 eggs beaten
60ml milk
1 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
30 gms desicated coconut
50 gms sultanas or raisins (optional)

Melt the butter with the caster sugar and milk in a small pan ....leave to cool slightly
Mix in the eggs, banana and vanilla
In a bowl mix together the flour, coconut and sultanas if using
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix gently together.

Place the batter into a greased and parchment lined 10" square baking tin.
You could also use a 2lb lined loaf tin but you will need to adjust the cooking time slightly

Sprinkle over the crumble mix and bake at 150c/300f/gas 4 for approx 45 minutes or until golden brown and springy to the touch
It may take a little longer if you use the loaf tin.

Leave to cool in the tin for around 5/10 minutes then turn it out & finish cooling on a rack.
When completely cool you can drizzle a little melted chocolate but this is optional  

Cut into squares, fingers as I did or just slice it.
